  1. The question is, why a booking was taken by the hotel from a couple who live over 200 miles away, if they are not registered ‘key workers’. Has this been normal practice over the past 14 Months during this pandemic??
    I would say the management of this hotel should have serious questions to answer.

  2. You haven’t needed to be a “registered key worker” since autumn last year. Any worker can stay, and some other exemptions.
